Some fresh snow overnight with up to 5cm in the valley and we woke up to beautiful blue skies. Lovely groomed runs and some nice fluff still to be found around the edges of the runs.

Changeable winds from the East with no wind in sheltered areas but some strong gusts on some of the more open runs. Get your sunblock on and your mirrored lenses and enjoy...

Backcountry Travel Advisory as at Feb 6th:

Today will see many people heading out into the backcountry because of the good weather and the recent new snow. Hopefully they will pick conservative lines and use good group control and safety measures. There are still multiple shear layers in the upper 1 m of the snow pack that may propagate and create avalanches in steep moderate and complicated terrain. Alpine bowls and chutes with big consequences should be avoided or reassessed for stability. Do not get fooled by the Ice Crust of January 12 as it is still a lingering week layer and faceting around this layer is prominent and depth hoar has also been found around this layer in multiple areas. Shear and compression tests have found moderate results on this layer and the shear plane is very clean and could produce problems so do assess stability of this layer before jumping in.

Solar radiated slopes will be warming and might produce loose avalanches in the upper layers of new snow.

Take due care out there and take mellow lines in simple terrain.

Avalanche Hazard as of Feb 6th:

Alpine: Considerable

Tree line: Considerable

Below Tree Line: Moderate
